A total of 25 countries have been given a yellow card (up to November 2017). Ten of them had their pre-identification lifted after periods varying between 10 and 39 months. For six of the pre-identified countries, the procedure continued with a red card and listing, of which three countries were delisted after 13, 20 and 35 months respectively. Currently nine countries have a yellow card, and three countries have a red card.
The countries involved in the procedures are located in southern and eastern Asia (seven of them), western-central Pacific (six), the Caribbean (six), West Africa (five) and the western Indian Ocean (one).
The figure below provides an overview of the procedures launched by the Commission, and their progress over time.
